The Life

Updated: Dec 3, 2020


I turn around and around

Avoiding the challenge

To imitate Lot's wife, frozen in time.

I am made of breath and humanity.

Ignoring the distractions and the echoes

Of the Pillar of Salt.

I move forward with the blessings

Of the here and now.

I am guided by space and freedom

And the knowledge that calls me home.
